An Interview with Kate Wolfgang Savage.
Who and where are you from?
My name is Kate Wolfgang Savage. I was raised in the countryside of southeastern New Hampshire and studied the foundations of drawing and painting in New York City and Philadelphia.
How you got into this?
I have loved to make as long as I can remember. I had a playful and creative childhood in which I explored many forms of art and craft. The complexity and capacity of oil painting to convey beauty and mystery compelled me to study it in-depth.
What is your driving force?
My experience of great works of art have been indeed sublime, even transcendent. My greatest ambition is to contribute such a gift to the world.
What kind of work you do and why?
I love to create with oils, graphite and charcoal. I find these mediums flexible and rich.
My last series, Blooming, is a meditation on the divine feminine. I painted women and repeating floral motifs to express a frequency of radiance from the inside out. Currently, I am in the beginning stages of a series using mythological narrative, allegory, and the concept of dynamic equilibrium.
Polarized pairs are of particular interest to me, as they appear to be a driving force of life. I enjoy the dynamic tension of classical oil painting in a contemporary world; the opportunity to combine structured principles with unbounded imagination; to use a practice of such traditional depth as a means to walk forward in the age of innovation.
